UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry - by Michael Swords and Robert Powell, with Clas Svahn, Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Bill Chalker, Barry Greenwood, RICHARD THIEME, Jan Aldrich, and Steve Purcell
Almost 5 years in the making on top of countless hours in archives, private libraries, etc., we believe this is the gold standard in historical research into the phenomena and how the military and intelligence communities responded from World War II to the present, using their own words and communications. Nearly one thousand sources are cited in almost 600 pages.
"Entering Sacred Digital Space: Seeking to Distinguish the Dreamer and the Dream"

“Silent Emergent, Doubly Dark” in the anthology: Subtle Edens
A splendid slipstream anthology (Elastic Press: London, 2008) includes Thieme’s breakthrough story, which received this review:
“Silent Emergent, Doubly Dark” by Richard Thieme opens with a quote from James Joyce, whom I consider to be a primogenitor of slipstream. Thieme, fortunately, doesn’t try to match Joyce for wordplay and instead gives us a calm, flat look into the psyche of an alien being. Thieme explores various levels of reality through his protagonist, moving farther and farther away from the seen, into unglimpsed realms. The story itself, like Joyce, is a bit difficult, but Thieme’s beautiful descriptions and intriguing concepts keep things interesting. This is a piece that truly deserves the slipstream label.
